Tuesday Treats: AQC set up

I’ve got a good excuse for being a day late with this post!

We spent Tuesday packing Aurifil threads for delivery to retailers at the Australasian Quilt Convention. By the time I completed the deliveries today most of the stands were almost complete and it was looking exciting.

Kaye at Needles & Pins (stand 4) has got a good selection of Cotton Mako' 28, 40 & 50

Look for some beautiful applique designs at the Needles & Pins stand

You will find a good assortment of Cotton Mako’ 28 (for quilting), 40 (for patchwork piecing) & 50 (for applique) at the Needles & Pins stand.

By the time I reached them, the girls at The Quilted Crow had their stand looking good.

I dropped off  Cotton Mako’ 28, made up into Collections of colours that they had especially selected to work with their wool applique designs.

I also dropped off a Cotton Mako’ 50 display at the Elm Grove Patchwork stand, so be sure to stop by to re-stock your thread box.

As I walked through the convention centre I saw some of our other Aurifil retailers busy setting up their stands.

  • Ballarat Patchwork
  • Somerset Patchwork & Quilting
  • Millrose Quilting & Gallery

I also stopped for a chat with Lisa Walton, of Dyed & Gone to Heaven. Her new book, “Beautiful Building Block Quilts” is a must have for every patchworker’s library.

Stop by at Lisa's stand to buy a copy of her book.

There is so much to see at the Quilt Convention this weekend, so do have fun and don’t forget to visit our Aurifil retailers.
